Make It Vancouver

March 28, 2011

Another Make It is just around the corner at The Croatian Cultural Centre April 15th–17th! This will be our 5th show in Vancouver and also mark our 2 year anniversary. What sets Make It apart from a traditional craft show is the funky, upbeat vibe. Over 90 of Canada’s top urban artisans and designer will be selling clothing, accessories, art, baby items and gourmet goodies.

Here is a list of some of the awesome things that you can do at Make It:

  • spruce up your wardrobe for spring with one of a kind clothing and accessories
  • find a great new piece of art
  • stuff your face with some delectable homemade treats
  • talk to super creative, charming designers from across Canada
  • buy some rad gifts that will blow minds
  • groove to the beats of DJ Brodevious
  • support the Union Gospel Mission by bidding on an amazing silent auction item
  • …AND you can drink beer and wine!!!
  • Make It is excited to be working with Opus once again! Our spring show will feature more visual artists than ever before. We have fine artists, photographers, textile artists, and graphic designers with incredibly unique style and creativity.

    Here is a sneak peak at some of our favorites:
    Cici Art Factory
    At Cici Art Factory, we believe little eyes deserve to see the chunky paint,pure pigment
    and clean design of original art. Modern children’s wall art will beautify and enhance your nursery, bedroom and playroom. Spark your children’s imaginations and stimulate their visual development with art for kids rooms.

    Yapes Paints
    April Lacheur is an acrylic painter living in White Rock near Vancouver BC Canada. Her style is unique, bold and colorful reflecting the positive energy that painting brings her.

    My main passion throughout life was sports and it has taught me a lot of life lessons that I will cherish. But painting is something that I am able to stay up all night doing and not get tired. It is something that I would want to do every day for the rest of my life.

    Hope Rudl
    As you will see I have a passion for black & white photography, but do work in color as well. I specialize in photo cards, framed prints and portraits and wedding services.

    We are so excited to be showcasing such a remarkable selection of artisans and hope that the response from Vancouverites is more enthusiastic than ever! Our last show saw 5500 people through the door and we are hoping to beat that this spring!
